Chocolates can fight tooth decay?

Good news for chocolate lover! I come across this news where research indicates that chocolate could be considered a superfood, along with blueberries and broccoli. And the surprising fact? It can even fight tooth decay!

Cacao, the main ingredients of chocolate contains polyphenols, flavonoids, and antibacterial properties. The news claim that cacao not only can fight tooth decay and improve mental well-being, it also can lower risk of diabetes, body fat percentage and improve cardiovascular health and mental wellbeing. However these benefits apply only to dark chocolate with high natural concentration of cacao.

I don’t know how true this piece of information can be. But it certainly is an exciting finding to look into! Now I regret for refraining myself from buying Royce dark chocolate during grocery shopping just now.
